Fox to Adapt Minority Report for Television

The 2002 Tom Cruise film Minority Report is now set to get a television sequel. Fox has announced that it is in the process of developing a pilot based on the hit film, but set to take place following the events depicted in the film.

Minority Report dealt with a futuristic society wherein all crime was being eliminated thanks to the predictive abilities of three Precogs, who were able to foresee crimes of all kinds before they were committed. At the close of the film, the project is disbanded due to corruption within the system.

The proposed series would take place ten years after the end of the film and follow one of the three Precogs as he attempts to come to terms with his continued visions. He meets a female detective, who is struggling with her own past, but may be able to help him fully adapt to what is means to be human.

The series is set to be co-produced by 20th Century Fox and Amblin (Steven Spielberg directed the original film), and the pilot will be written by Godzilla‘s Max Borenstein. There is no timetable for when the pilot will be shot or whether or not it will be picked up to series.
